Tower of Flames is a simple one-skein lace scarf worked up in Schaefer Yarn's Laurel, a glorious, soft, drapey worsted weight pima cotton.  The bottom of the scarf starts with a flame lace motif that cajoles the edges of the scarf into sweet little curves, the body of the scarf is done in a super simple, easy to memorize tower lace pattern. So, basically, once you make it through the bottom section you are home free! As with all my patterns the lace stitch is both written out and supplied in an easy to read chart. This was one of my first times working with one lace pattern and then finessing it into another, I do believe I am addicted.  See the close-up pic for the details of the lace pattern.
